This is part of my Still Life Jazz series. It takes the fundamental idea of a floral still life and then reinvents it in a contemporary way. I want these works to be fun, lively, and modern in feel. It is easily famed in a standard 8x10 frame - I'd pick a plain white one for this to tie into and accentuate the line work. Although it is great on its own, it would also look terrific in a cluster with 1-5 others of the same size in this series. I invite you to look for more from me as I post them.
The title popped into my head after the painting was done. Looks a fun at a burger bar.
I'm Donald Bruce Wright, a fine artist based in the Santa Cruz Mountains of Northern California. You'll see works here from me created in several media, including oil on canvas as well as smaller pieces made with water-based paints on watercolor paper. The paintings displayed on Vango are from my "Still Life Jazz" series. Like a jazz player who takes a musical standard and then interprets it in new ways, I create paintings that are based on an art world standard: the still life. Real life and its structure serve as a point of departure while remaining loosely recognizable in the final work. Creating these bold energetic floral inventions within the traditional conceptual format of a still life allows the work to project the contradictory sense of being somehow familiar yet fresh. Although my painting style is self-taught, I received formal grounding in art by earning a Master of Fine Arts degree in 2007.
